trips | xcountry camping.

I just got back from two weeks on the road–camping across the south and stopping in places like Louisville, Memphis, Shreveport, Dallas, El Paso, Las Cruces, White Sands, Phoenix, Joshua Tree, and Palm Springs.

This is my finished Seeds Hat from Jared Flood’s (of the always brilliant Brooklyn Tweed) book Woolens, which came out last fall. Despite scooping up the book as soon as it was released, it wasn’t until last week that I finally picked my first project. Seeds hat, it is. There are a number of otherContinue reading “woolens | seeds hat.”
